tom's-face

I’m knee deep in writing a new Alfie Solomons fiction and that means I am also ear deep in hearing Tom Hardy’s voice in my head doing THAT accent … and then there is of course the tedious task of choosing Just The Right gif to accompany the story.    I’m literally drowning in Alfie right now.   Alfie is all up in my spaces.   (wait… what?!)

and sorry suckers but I ain’t going down alone!  

I’d really like to know who was responsible for tying Alfie up and how that all went down.  Like I need to see that scene.

beard scratching Alfie makes me feel quite …. itchy.  \ (•◡•) /

Back to writing!

Peace y’all  ;)

This part is not even so bad…the mess is obviously the other side of Tom’s face!

After an entire afternoon spent rearranging lips and cheeks (already colored, damn!), this is the best I can do without make an irreparable overwork. The worse is on the other side, where I can’t do nothing because the white of the gel pen in the eye it cannot be removed. For not to speak of the hair…

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

40 Year Old Doctor Who Episode Holds Timely Warning For Today

“You know, the very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common.  They don’t alter their views to fit the facts. They alter the facts to fit their views.”

In the classic Doctor Who story “The Face of Evil”, the Doctor (Tom Baker) and his companion Leela (Louise Jameson) attempt to usher a peace between two warring tribes.  The Doctor reminds us in the episode that those in charge sometimes have an interesting way of dealing with facts.  Over the weekend, the Trump administration engaged in exactly the practice the Doctor warned of, with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer lying about the attendance of Trump’s inauguration, and Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway later saying that Spicer wasn’t lying, he was using ‘alternative facts’.  Something to keep in mind as we watch this administration develop over the next four years.

Tom was being his sweet self, as usual, but the kitten had other ideas.
